Note

Im Willis Tower (bis Juli 2009 Sears Tower), dem höchsten Gebäude der Stadt Chicago und derzeit höchsten Wolkenkratzer der USA, wurden an der 412 Meter hoch gelegenen Aussichtsetage im 103. Stock drei geschlossene Glasbalkone, genannt 'The Ledge', montiert. Auf einer Glasplatte stehend, die nur an einer Seite an der Turmfassade befestigt ist, kann man direkt in die Tiefe schauen.

The Willis (or formerly Sears) Tower, the tallest building in the western hemisphere, holds a new attraction since 2009: The new Skydeck observation area – nicknamed 'The Ledge' – featuring a series of all-glass observation boxes, comprised of 3 x 0.5 inch thick glass panes without any structural steel framing elements that extend 4.3 feet out from the existing tower wall.
The glass observation boxes 103 floors over Chicago or 1353 feet straight down offer a thrilling "one stop Chicago" experience, a kick hard to find anywhere else.

Open: April through September from 9am-10pm & October through March from 10am-8pm
